With a hands-on introduction to the fundamental posing techniques for fashion, blogging and social media.

Meet Rick Jones
Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, Rick D Jones is a photographer who specializes in plus. With a goal to show that curvy models could be photographed the same as straight size models, he has made his impact capturing images of beautiful people throughout the country. In just six years, he has been featured in many publications including, Vogue Italia, Refinery29, and HuffPost Style. He has also worked with major brands, such as Ashley Stewart, Always for Me, and Beverly Johnson Entertainment. Rick’s eye for the runway and authentic shooting style has been paramount in capturing the “money shot” and events. Being the staff photographer for Full Figured Fashion Week for the last four years attests to the consistent delivery of a quality product. As his brand has evolved, Rick has taken a step from behind the camera to speak as a panelist at model boot camps, judge modeling contests, and provide coaching to developing models. As the demand for his work increases, he is optimistic about the opportunities to expand his brand locally and abroad.
During this workshop, Rick will discuss:
· Headshots: What works & what doesn’t; What to wear; How to find a makeup artist and photographer in your area; Being clear on negotiating before booking a hair/makeup person and photographer.
